I have one of the most stupidly pointless and heavily armed mixing rooms in the UK , and have almost all the classic verbs you could imagine Lexicon 224xl
, 480, 300 , 300L
, PCM 80, Emt 140, Emt 250, AMS RMX16
, Ursa Major, Yamaha Rev 1 / 5 / 7 , British spring, Eventide 3000 x2 ...etc etc..
I have to tell you, I would hands DOWN choose the 300 over the 480 for a main verb
It absolutely CUTS IT for front to back room flavours. ' Studio B' ' Studio A' ' Ambience' ' In A Room ' - instant YES every time...
480 I find just tempts you to twiddle your day away sculpting and sliding....
Something about the ' choose a space and hit enter ' experience of the 300 and the fact that it sounds brilliant as a global send really appeals - and that is the reason it has been parked on my SSL aux send for the last 5 years.
I mean it isn't 'Quantec Real' or anything... it just works so much.
And believe me I have tried everything else.
